Technology & innovation law

Redchip applauds the entrepreneurs, the innovators and the courageous starters.

Over many years in the arena, Redchip has developed a close affinity with the special, and often novel, requirements of start-ups and technology companies. The Redchip team has a strong pedigree in intellectual property law and a thorough understanding of technology – we speak innovation!

We have the knowledge and tools to advise and assist you with the commercialisation of your intellectual property, information technology and other emerging technologies, at all stages of the innovation lifecycle.

We have provided bespoke advice and agreements to many organisations pursuing a competitive edge through technology and new media, including software developers, multimedia and website developers, private sector companies, e-commerce providers, universities and government organisations.

By drawing on our own knowledge and the brainpower of our colleagues in Trade marks, Commercial and Business Advice, Business Structuring & Restructuring, Tax, Intellectual Property, and Mergers & Acquisitions, we bridge the gap between commercial considerations and tech-speak.
